Rediscover your creativity. Come on, we dare you.
From the amazing lady that brought you Eat, Pray, Love comes Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, a refreshing series of essays demystifying the creative process and inspiring change.
This powerful, condensed SIX-week course is for novices and working artists of all types, including writers, visual artists, actors, dancers, musicians...ANYONE who recognizes their innate creativity!
In a supportive and safe setting we will:
-work through the chapters in Big Magic
-take a look "behind the scenes"--those people, places, things in both our past and present that keep us from plunging forward with our art
-play with activities such as yoga, drawing, painting, collaging, photo, improv, etc., both for fun sake and to expand our horizons
-hold ourselves accountable to daily/weekly creative practices
-discover new processes to make us more pro-active and productive
-re-discover joy, in little things, in one another, and in our day to day lives.
Bring a copy of Big Magic (many available at the local libraries) and a notebook. No previous arts experience required. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and questions!
*The class is six weeks long: 1/9, 1/16, 1/23, 1/30, 2/6, and 2/13. Meetings are from 10am-12pm.
